Seven years after his debut concert Daniel: Live! and Daniel Padilla said he still gets shy when people refer to him as a singer.

At the virtual presscon for his upcoming concert Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience, DJ said he has high respect for the singers in the industry. “Ayoko lang i-consider ang sarili ko na isang singer. Pero maybe I can consider myself as an artist, sa film industry or sa music industry, nandun ako sa mundo na yun pareho. Iba kasi tingin ko sa isang singer. Iba training ng isang singer. Iba ang dedication ng isang singer. Ako, I’m just a performer. I’m just doing kung anong kaya kong gawin. And yun lang. Hindi ko siya tinitingnan as singer ako. Iba. Pag andito ka sa ASAP at nakikita mo na trinatrabaho ng mga singer, mahihiya ka rin (laughs). Ibang iba training nun. Umaga pa lang, may mga vocalizations, alam nila yung mga voicing nila. Hindi naman ako ganun.”

Despite his initial reluctance to get into singing, DJ said he has gained more confidence now on stage after doing numerous successful performances. “Oo naman. Masasabi ko na mas confident na ako ngayon kasi mas kilala ko na sarili ko in terms of music. Ano ba dapat yung kinakanta ko? Ano ba dapat yung para sa akin? So mas kumportable na ako sa mga kinakanta ko. Mas may confidence lang pero andun pa rin yung kaba. Hindi nawawala yun. Hindi nawawala yung daga sa dibdib ko pagka magsisimula na ako, andun pa rin yun eh. Pero habang kumakanta na ako nawawala na yun kasi dinadala na rin ng pagmamahal ko sa music  yung sarili ko. Kaya wala na, I just enjoy it,” he explained.


DJ admitted he would also love to get the chance to collaborate with other local artists. “Well the best na naka-collaborate ko siyempre unang una si Moira dela Torre. it was a dream for me. Pangalawa, nagagawa ko na eh, yung maka-jam ko yung kapatid ko kasi I see my brother as the best musician now. Hindi naman sa biased pero he’s really good and may pagkakataon lang na maka-jam ko sila at matuto dahil hanggang ngayon pag minsan, pag walang ginagawa, tumutugtog pa rin ako. Nag-be-bass guitar. So pag nakakasabay ko pa rin sila, masaya pa rin, parang honor na sa akin yun ngayon kasi ilang beses na rin sila tumutugtog. Ang dami ko ring natutututunan,” he said.
